    Hi Mr Ruddy

    Jewish people keep a Mezuzah hanging by the door to remind them to lead a good life. The Mezuzah has two parts, a little scroll on which certain prayers are written. The protective container is usually decorated to make it attractive.

    A Mezuzah is a parchment inscribed with religious texts and attached in a case to the doorpost of a Jewish house as a sign of faith. It looks like a little box on the door, some people kiss it every time they pass it as a blessing. Usually, it has some Hebrew writing on it ( sometimes meaning God bless us or Bless you). In some Mezuzahs, there is a teeny weeny piece of paper usually saying one of the commandments. That doesn’t mean the others aren’t important.

    This small box is called a Mezuzah. You can find it on the doorframe of a Jewish household. There is a small piece of parchment with a prayer on it from the Torah this prayer is called ‘Shema Yisrael’. Jewish people have these on their doorframe to signify their faith.

    Good evening Mr Ruddy. A Mezuzah is a piece of metal. Jewish people hang it on their doorposts. They normally kiss it to remind them they are Jewish. Inside the Mezuzah, there is a scroll telling the Jewish people that they have one God and they must worship him. It is also written in Hebrew.

    The mezuazh contains a little piece of paper that says that there is only one God and you must only love one God. This piece of paper with the writing is a little text from the Torah itself. It is found on Jews doors to remind them that there is one God.

    This is a Mezuzah it’s found in front of Jewish people doors. It have scroll in it with piece written from the Torah to remind Jewish people to live a good life. In Hebrew it’s called the Shema the word “mezuzah” technically refers to the scroll only, but in common usage it means either the scroll, the case, or both together.

    Good Evening Mr Ruddy,

    Jewish people put a mezuzah on there door, just to let people know a jew lives there and they are a follower of God. Inside the mezuzah there is a little prayer from the Torah. In the Torah it is written in hebrew, as well as the prayer in the mezuzah. Jewish people have a mezuzah, because they are a Jew.
